Camped in the southern part of park along 16. First couple of nights in the high elevations and the third in the Ten Sleep area. Two completly different terrains and you need to visit both areas to understand the beauty of the park. Ten Sleep area is where all the climbers go so it's kind of hippy like. If youre not driving a Prius or Subrau you not part of the masses. Eastern part of park is more travel trailers. Hot in western part (Ten Sleep) and more temperate in eastern. All of it beautiful. If it rains head to HEI in Buffalo.

I was at Big Horn for a trail race. We transverse through mountain tops above tree lines, fields of wild flowers, upland prairie, deep canyons, and creeks. The scenery was breathtaking, so is the elevation (4,000m / 13,000') Beware of wildlife, too!

WOW!! The Big Horn Mountains are AMAZING!! We traveled over them on our way to Cody, WY coming from Rapid City, SD. The views are breathtaking however being the driver I didn't get to enjoy them as much as the rest of the family. Rt 14 is a winding road which moves up and down over the Big Horn Mountains. Some areas of the road seem to just skirt the rim of the mountain while other areas you find yourself traveling through what seems like a cow pasture with signs warning of open range. In one area we had a road block due to four cows that refused to move off the road!! Glad we had the chance to experience this beautiful part of our country however on our way back to Rapid City we choose to take I-90 up into Billings, Montana down into SD.

In the Big Horn Mountains about 20 miles west of Dayton WY there is a great hike of about 2 miles. It is the Black Mountain Fire Lookout, built in the 1930's by the CCC's. It is built on the very top of a peak. It takes about an hour to hike there from the trailhead, but it is well worth it. The view is spectacular and well worth the effort . We were there over the 4th of July and made it up there by 9:00 am. It is only one of the great viewing experiences in the Big Horn's.

We visited the Big Horn Canyons in Wyoming this past summer. We have a son who is 7, and went with my great aunt and uncle who are in their 60's, and we all had a wonderful time! This truly is a thing to see for all ages!

The most amazing part of the visit was the overlook into the canyon. I've never had the chance to visit the Grand Canyon, but this was definitely comparable, and not for those afraid of heights, although the top is surrounded with fencing and there is no worry of falling.

The landscape looks like that of an old western movie, and there are truly wild horses roaming the land which we got a very good view of, and saw wild sheep as well! Our visit was in August, and even then the weather was amazing with no humidity, and a comfortable 78 degrees which is normal for that area.

All I can say is it is definitely worth seeing, and you will be amazed at the entire area. We will be back this coming summer just to see it again....it's a well kept secret but worth sharing!
